Standing commitee chairperson P. Rajeshkumar told Deccan Chronicle that the committee has decided to appoint a commission with all committee members as members to visit the college on January 24 for a sitting where students, teachers and parents can appear and provide evidences on allegations against the college. However, the decision has to be ratified by the syndicate meeting to be held on Saturday. The college was established before the concept of the self-financing colleges was introduced in the state.
